Love Atlanta, but Houston has places that look like everyone of those pictures...except for the tract home architecture of East Atlanta Village..and of course the rolling hills and 4 seasons.

exactly. there is really nothing in houston like atlantic station, technology square, pemberton place, the emory area, etc (some areas come close, but not quite). and while houston does have as many of the historic intown communities that atlanta does, none are as beautiful in my opinion

OH NO! Not another picture war ... LOL! That wasn't my intent. But I did mean to point out that all those ATL pics show either older established neighborhoods that have gone through serious gentrification (L5P, Va-Ha, Ansley Park, Midtown), or new in-fill housing (East Atlanta, Midtown West, Sweet Auburn, Atlantic Station) where NO housing existed before. I think it shows how Atlanta's attempts at urban renewal through special zoning districts is working.

MY FAVORITE OF ALL: ATLANTIC STATION IN WEST MIDTOWN (used to be a steel mill):

close, but not really. i do however think the area around discovery green is really starting to look very dapper.

posting pictures proves nothing Al. You post some pictures, I post prettier ones, you post some more, Then I will post pretty ones too. It just doesn't support you claim that zoning makes a city more attractive.
